fanletizia, is this translated literally? I've never seen it written this way before and I'm actually impressed if there is no distinction between King and Queen in formal language (as opposed to Reina). Please let me know and thanks :)

In Portuguese/Spanish when referring to plural, we always use the plural of the masculine word (of course this doesn't apply if we're talking about women only). So in the case above it was "Los Reyes" and literally translated as "The Kings".

It was a dinner of gala in the Royal Palace, I believe that it is impossible that she was putting to sing there. It was a dinner of state, very established by protocol and formal, not a concert.

Rocio Jurado was invited with her husband to the dinner by the Embassy of Colombia. Her husband Ortega Cano is a famous bullfighter there, both have a house in Cartagena de Indias , and the boy and the girl that they adopted were Colombian.

What is next for the King and Queen when they come back from Norway? Are they heading to Mallorca for a much-needed break?

The Casa Real website doesn't show any activities for them in the upcoming days.
